Mixing hard and soft floating point?

Anyone tried mixing hard and soft FP in on soft float CPU such as 83xx?

Been trying to figure out if this is a good idea or not.
Any combinations that will or won't work?

Generally I got soft FP in all system libs but there might be
an binary application which will use hard FP.
Is the MATH_EMU option in the kernel reliable(for 8xx too)?
